egyptian president mohamed morsi as a dictator and accusing him of a power grab. cnn's reza sayah is in cairo. reza, what's it look like now? >> reporter: joe, it is 11:00 p.m. cairo time. these demonstrators started gathering around in tahrir square about 1:00 p.m. local time. that means they've been going strong for about ten hours. many thought maybe egyptians were worn out, tired of demonstrating after the 2011 revolution, but if you look at tahrir square today, if you look at cairo today, it doesn't seem like it. the demonstrations are continuing. so are clashes. about an hour and a half ago clashes taking place right where we are behind us at the hotel we're staying at. security forces clashing with protesters. a number of protesters ambushed a police vehicle carrying riot police. the police took off. the protesters got ahold of this truck, set it on fire. more security forces came in, shot tear gas and disbursed the protesters. we've seen similar clashes throughout the day. all the demonstrators angry after president morsi declared some controversial decrees that temporaril
and other top congressional leaders weren't told sooner. a time line cnn has put together shows the republican house majority leader may have known about former cia director david petraeus' extramarital affair before the president did. that's according to aides to congressman eric cantor who tell us he found out from an fbi employee concerned that national security might have been breached as a result of the affair. cantor was told on october 27th. president obama didn't find out about the affair until after election day. congressional leaders from both parties are upset that neither they nor the president were informed until late last week. >> obviously this was a matter involving a potential compromise of security. and the president should have been told about it at the earliest date. >> reporter: a u.s. official said there was no breach of security as a result of the affair. a cantor aide says the congressman called the fbi's leadership to report the information he got on october 31st. but according to "the wall street journal," the fbi's probe had already been under way for

new cnn colleague, the culinary superstar who will dine on anything, anthony bourdain is here. joining me is barbara starr and intelligence correspondent, suzanne kelly. welcome back to you both. every night i say right off the top, can any of us get our heads round this and how much more ridiculous can it get, and lo and behold, it gets more ridiculous. barbara starr, let's try and get to what we believe to be the facts behind all the kind of lurid, titillating headlines. a second general today, petraeus' successor in afghanistan, general john allen, a marine corps four star general, current nominee to be the new nato supreme allied commander, so a very big fish indeed in the military. he is apparently at the center of a scandal involving 30,000 documents, all pages or e-mails or whatever that he exchanged with this second woman, the other other woman, jill kelley. what do we know about the content of this? because it's not as simple as simply 30,000 e-mails, right? >> well, that's the real question. what's really involved here. the spin machine is in full cycle on this one. the penta
for joining me today. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with alina cho. >> hey, carol, thank you very much. i'm in for ashleigh banfield today. we are so glad you're with us today. and let's get started. first up, we just can't call it the petraeus scandal anymore. today, the u.s. general in charge of allied troops in afghanistan, the top commander john allen is himself the subject of a pentagon investigation of allegedly inappropriate communications with jill kelley. yes, that jill kelley, we're talking about the same tampa housewife whom david petraeus' then mistress paula broadwell apparently saw as a rival. a whole new chapter in a saga that since last friday has been one bombshell after another. and so far, all of them have something to do with kelley. she's a volunteer military liaison at the air force base, home of the u.s. central command in tampa, florida. kelley complained to the fbi last spring when paula broadwell was having an affair with petraeus allegedly harassed her with jealous e-mails. petraeus admitted the affair with broadwell but denies any elicit contact with kelley. so
. >> this is "cnn breaking news." >> and we begin with breaking news out of the conflict zone, an attack at the u.s. embassy in tel aviv in israel. details just coming in, but an israeli police spokesman says a security guard at the embassy was attacked with an ax. the attacker reportedly also had a knife on him. we know the attacker has been arrested. when we get more information, we will bring that to you. of course, this is all happening as israel and hamas at the tipping point of all-out war. the israelis carrying out 80 air strikes overnight with hamas fighters launching 95 rockets into israel. 38 more palestinians killed, bringing the death toll since last week to 111. cnn has confirmed secretary of state hillary clinton is heading to israel in the air at this very moment. tomorrow she will meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. she'll also visit egypt and the west bank city of ramallah. and while the two sides are trading cease-fire proposals, israel's ambassador tells erin burnett his country is ready to launch a full-scale ground invasion. we talk to our reporter in phnom penh. she
came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> reporter: a source inside the meeting tells cnn rice admitted to gop senators she was aware of classified information suggesting al qaeda was behind the attack. and yet gop senators point out she still said this publicly. >> we have decimated al qaeda. >> reporter: cnn has also told rice tried to clarify to gop senators that what she meant was al qaeda's core leadership had been decimated. but gop senators argue rice was putting pre-election spin before national security. >> it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> reporter: rice did not answer our questions. she did release a statement admitting her talking points "were incorrect in a key respect. there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. while we certainly wish we had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. we stress that neither i nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the american people at
our cnn correspondents across israel as well as in gaza right now. earlier in the day, i went to orbkalon where i saw what was going on firsthand on the israeli side of the border. as soon as we got there, the sirens actually started going on. you could see people running towards shelters. i started running after israeli soldiers demanded that all of us -- our cnn crew, myself, we get to a shelter. usually they have about 30 seconds once the sirens go off before there actually is a rocket or missile that reaches the ground. in this particular case, when we were running, we got to a shelter. it was packed with soldiers, with civilians. and then we finally heard that thud. in this particular case, that iron dome, the israeli anti-missile defense shield, which has been financed at least in some measure by the united states, it worked. and the incoming rokts and missiles were destroyed in the air. later we walked outside and saw that plume of smoke showing those missiles, the rockets had been destroyed. earlier in the day at that same school where we had been -- the iron dome didn
. cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and chief political correspondent gloria borger join us right now. gloria, guess i'll start with you. does the president have any leverage? >> he has a lot of leverage right now. i mean, if you look back to the debt ceiling in the summer of 2011, you recall the president was accused of negotiating with himself because it was sort of a time of weakness for him. right now, look, joe, he's just won re-election. 67% of the american public according to our polls believes that there should be a deal that contains a combination of spending cuts and tax increases. more than half of the american public says, you know what, we'd like the taxes on the wealthy to go up. so he does have public opinion on his side. just been re-elected. so he feels like, you know, he's got the wind at his back so to speak. >> jessica yellin, when you look at the situation a lot of democrats on capitol hill are suggesting they're ready to go over the fiscal cliff. what's the president saying about that? >> reporter: well, the white house says that that's not some

? >> well, a government source who is familiar with the investigation confirms to cnn that the fbi probe that led to david petraeus' resignation was launched after jill kelly contacted the fbi about that e-mail she said she received. she viewed it as threatening, she said, and it turned out to be from paula bradwell, but the source said the e-mail was jealous in tone but didn't know much about the content or if there was more than one e-mail. kelly has been known to be on the washington social circuit as well. according to this government source, who had actually met her at a washington party. >> suzanne kelly talking to a lot of folks in washington and we'll hear from -- more from you, i'm sure, as the story continues to unfold. the head of the cia was conducting an illicit affair. is that in itself a matter of national security? some members of congress apparently think it is. and they're asking why the intelligent committees weren't informed about the matter before they were. cnn's dana bash is live for us on capitol hill. dana, first off what is the reaction from people you have spok
this for quite awhile now. he had a chance to sit down with pierce morgan on cnn. >> essentially the media has played a role in protecting david petraeus and promoting david petraeus. we saw it again tonight, a spokesperson in baghdad, who was a roommate with petraeus is on tv defending david petraeus without addressing the real problems with david petraeus' record. you may not get something like that from barbara starr who is a spokesperson for the pentagon in many ways. >> michael, you started laughing two-thirds of the way through that one. what do you think when you see that? >> my friend barbara star send me their best wishes, i'm sure. the point i was making and why i made that point is because you have a scandal with general petraeus where it's a sex scandal and almost in any other situation the media would have turned on him and tried to rip him to shreds. but because he's in the military and he has this emperor-like persona around him they treat him very softly. >> let me challenge you on what you said there and what you're saying now. barbara star, pentagon correspondent in cnn, wher
of the cspan cameras and the cnn cameras, these should not be closed door negotiations. the american people should see what both sides are -- >> then it turns into a theater, though, stephen. >> no, no. look, but what happens now is everybody is -- somebody said this and nobody knows who is being really truthful about what's being offered. i think -- i shoot for transparency. i think this should all be in the sunlight and you would have monster ratings. people would tune in. >> i'm for tran paresparency bu grandstanding. >> i think this is probably going to linger on for another couple of weeks. i wouldn't be surprised if you and i aren't having this conversation on december 23rd or december 24th. but i think they're going to get this deal done before the end of the year. >> yeah. happy holidays, huh? thank you, stephen moore. >> great to be with you, sir. >>> -- extremely, extremely frustrated. this is what you need to understand. we go from one to another. we go from fema to our homeowners. my home owners insurance offered me $150. what can i do with that? >> tempers and emotions hitting
to allen tells cnn of kelly there is no affair, she's a bored socialite. a u.s. official says there appears to be nothing criminal involved. but allen is now under investigation for what is called inappropriately flirtatious e-mails to kelly. >> secretary directed it be referred to inspector general of department of defense. >> the fbi found up to 35,000 pages of documents, some dating back two years during the investigation. according to a senior official close to allen, one message the afghan commander sent warned kelly she had been threatened. the official says allen had received an anonymous message, now believed to be from broadwell. the pentagon was called in because allen is subject to military law. but why did this only come out now in public view? >> we have a large amount of alleged material that went between these individuals, as much as 30,000 pages. it's not clear whether this was viewed as a relatively minor question or whether it was not apparent until the very end that the general was involved. >> allen was to appear thursday for senate hearing to become the military head of
